A variable form of Phyllostachys bambusoides var. castilloni in which the 
characteristic broad green stripe on the sulcus (grooved or flattened side)

stripe may occur on the rounded side of an internode that otherwise 
is pure yellow, and there may also be slender whitish stripes in some 
leaves. A form apparently similar to this was briefly described from Japan 
many years ago and erroneously identified with P. sulphurea A. & C. 
Riviere ; it was then called P. reticulata var. sulphures Makino.

From Nicaragua. Seeds obtained by F. A. McClure, Office of Foreign Agricultural 
Relations, United States Department of Agriculture. Received Feb, 20, 1946. 

Collected at El Recreo. The plant is open caespitose. The culms reach a 
diameter of 4 cm., and a length of about 20 m.; they are ascending in habit, with 
long, slender, scandent or pendulous tips. The culm internodes have very thin 
walls, and in a 16-m. culm they range in length from 37.5 cm. in the second 
internode from the base to 87 cm. in the twelfth. The branches, which arise 
from solitary buds, include a strong central branch and numerous, very much 
smaller secondary ones that arise from the base of the central branch at each 
node. In Nicaragua the internodes of this bamboo are used by field laborers as 
containers for drinking water. Although quite fragile, and probably not very 
durable, the culms would lend themselves readily to the making of woven matting 
of a type used for shades and screens. In Venezuela the seeds are used locally as 
a source of flour for bread and pastries.
